After completing the initial construction of their worship space, Fox River Christian Church’s congregation quickly outgrew the space. Zimmerman was hired to renovate the existing worship space, expanding the seating from 400 to 1,000. Classrooms, meeting rooms, and an expanded gathering space were also added as part of the project.
